WIP Wednesday #6

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

I used to pride myself on having just one WIP at a time.  Occasionally, I would have two projects going on, but only if I was making a gift for someone.  Things have changed.  I now have multiple projects going on and sometimes have a hard time keeping track of everything.  I do like having lots of options when I sit down to sew, though. 

#1--World of Goo:  I'm in the process of quilting this guy.  It's a beast to do.  I thought of several quilting options, but couldn't get this design out of my mind despite how hard I tried.  I knew it was going to be a lot of work.  I'm quilting it quite heavily.  I'm quilting multiple rows of stitching per block.  It's taking me almost as long to quilt a block as it took me to piece it.  I have 5 done and 7 to go. 


#2:  Innocent Crush Diamond Quilt:  I've finished cutting all my diamonds.  This isn't my final design; I just placed them on the wall as I pieced and cut them.  I'm not really sure how big this will be in the end..  It's one of those projects I started without a specific plan in mind. 

#3:  Another Valentine's pillow:  I figured the first one needed a friend.  I've finished the layout and now need to piece all these little blocks.

#4:  HST quilt:  No progress
#5: Modern Quilt Guild Challenge Quilt: A disaster that caused me multiple headaches.  I'm back to the drawing board on that one.

  3. World of Goo is turning out to be pretty darn epic, if you ask me! It's looking really awesome, Kati, I really love it. It makes me want to try an all-solids quilt, which I've never done. Your diamonds look fantastic, too, I'm really curious to see how that one turns out!

  4. The Innocent Crush Diamonds that you have on your design wall truly look like stained glass. Amazing. World of Goo has to be the best quilt title ever - I still remember your post where you talked about that game and I keep forgetting to tell my teenagers about it. Besides the great name it looks great too!
